He might also be remembered for the murder of his wife. It has been said that Miller’s 35 year old wife had been unfaithful and taunted him about it. She reportedly said something along the line of “If you don’t like it, why don’t you get a gun and shoot me?” On the morning of May 7, 1971, Humble Harve Miller, now Mad As Hell Miller, shot and killed his wife Gladys in their Hollywood home with a .38 revolver, and fled the scene. Some days later, he surrendered to authorities and was tried for the crime. He would plead guilty to second degree murder, but in the end served less than three years at Chino Institute for Men, and then resumed his broadcasting career. Another account of the incident was that Miller caught his wife with another man, in the bed they shared, and Miller shot and killed them both. That was not true. Humble Harve Miller was 85 years old when he died June 2019.
